sadly the english language doesn't have such word :/ spanish does though
gustas (means like)
quiero (this would be the word between love and like , literally it means i want you, but it's never taken in a dirty way)
amo (which means love)

@patrickmajor So thats where that fucking Taco Bell dog got that! :O "Yo Quiero Taco Bell"

@721750 (patrickmajor): Actually it means that the persons wants to eat in Taco Bell but I'm not going to bust your bubble. :)

Infatuated, because that's what it is really.

Usually people refer to "like like" haha but that just sounds corny

EXACTLY what i was thinking when i read the post.

@Elementary school style: Like-like.

I was at my brother's middle school, stuffing their candy grams. This one had a note that said, "I thought you should know...I like-like you."
I thought it was adorable.

It's called "really like."

@GWest why just teens?

I'm guessing they meant because teens think the way they feel about somebody is beyond liking them, so they want to use the word "love," but don't want to sound stupid and have people yelling at them, telling them that they couldn't possibly love the person.

Are you stupid?

Hahah. I'm 19 and I still do this to understand if my friends like someone or not. "So... You like him? Or like... Like like him?" It'll never get old.

If you don't get too technical, the work "lust" fits in between pretty snuggly. I know the definition says what it says, but words can and are loosely translated. Not to mention their definitions change over time. Look at UrbanDictionary!

P.S. They asked me to add 5+8 below and I almost didn't know what it was. It is way too early.
